Guinea - Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband - Statistics and Analyses

For the following three years the number of subscribers grew strongly while revenue also increased steadily, a trend which has continued unabated since then. The mobile market now has four competing networks, and though the number of subscribers dipped slightly in 2016 this was due to the removal of dormant SIM cards among operators. The debt-stricken incumbent fixed-line operator Sotelgui operated its Lagui mobile unit before it closed down in late 2012. Sotelgui was declared bankrupt in 2013, and though there have been several announcements regarding its revival the government in late 2017 confirmed that there was no prospect of its return without a public private partnership to inject substantial cash and equip the company with skilled management.
Broadband services are still very limited and expensive. The landing of the first international fibre optic submarine cable in 2012, and the setting up of an IXP in mid-2013, has gone some way to developing the nascent broadband market develop by reducing the cost of internet bandwidth and improving the reliability of infrastructure. A National Backbone Network is being built to connect administrative centrs across the country, though in practice almost all internet connectivity will remain via mobile networks.

Key developments:
Guinea and Mali sign agreement to abolish roaming and harmonize interconnection rates;
More than a quarter of Guinea's national Backbone Network completed;
Mobile smartphones and apps deployed to tackle Ebola;
Mobile Money services gain strong customer take-up;
MTN signs management services contract with Huawei;
Cellcom Guinea launches 3G+ services;
Sotelgui revival still with little hope;
Report update includes the regulator's market data to June 2017, operator data to Q2 2017, recent market developments.
